A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
T0 THE MEMBERS OE THE GRADUATING CLASS
June is the time of commencement. All over the country
young men and women are completing courses of study in our
schools and colleges and are stepping out to meet the demands of
real life. To some it is a step in the dark: to others it is such a
long step that some kind of a bridge has to be supplied.
You young men and Women who are completing your courses
at Westinghouse Tech have no problem of adjusting yourselves to
new conditions. You have earned your Way While you have been
developing your knowledge and personality as a preparation for
greater responsibilities. You have been learning to Walk by Walk-
ing: learning to Work by Working: learning to think by thinking:
and learning to live by living. .
. At this time you are pausing for a little While on your journey
of life to receive a friendly pat on the back for Work Well done in
the past and a Word of encouragement for the future.
May you live long to apply the principles which you have
learned at Westinghouse Tech and to enjoy the friends you have

He is dead, the beautiful youth,
The heart of honor, the tongue of truth,

The Cheer of whose laugh, and whose pleasant word,
Hushed all muruiurs uf discontent.

24 THE TECH OWL
, History of Class of '26
"All the days we've been together,
Fondly we recall,
Days of fair and stormy weather,
Thou hast gladdened all."
The enrollment at XYestinghouse Tech for the
fall term of l922 was one of the largest the school
had ever had. XYC were there a hundred and some
odd strong. ln fact, the enrollment for theffresh-
man class was so large that it had to be split up
into three or four sections. Even so some of them
had to repose on radiators and windowsills until
the question of room assignment could be settled.
Vile were backward as freshies usually are, and
gasped in awe upon passing upper classmen.
VVe did not become a shining star during that
eventful freshman year but rather limited our ei-
forts to becoming acquainted with the faculty or
that part of the faculty attached to the freshman
class, and concentrated the remaining part of our
efforts upon study. It was a mighty hard year
and one which tried the mettle of each and every
member of the class. Many stood the test and re-
joiced at the end of the spring term of l923 when
informed that they were eligible for membership
in the sophomore class. Gladly did we welcome
By this time we became accustomed to the ways
of the school and, since we were so completely oc-
cupied in getting acquainted during the freshman
year, decided to step out, discontinue our freshman
pranks and customs, become dignified as all upper
classmen should, and show the other students of
Westinghotise Tech that we were present. XVe
were able to place our representatives on the va-
rious athletic teams. By hard work and the burn-
ing of much midnight oil, we were able to devote
much time to school activities. Thus we progressed
step by step, becoming more enthusiastic as time
rolled by, until we must needs have a hand in all
During this period, one event which will be re-
corded in the annals of the school was the organi-
zation of the Forum. A small number of men,
members of the sophomore class of economics, con-
ceived the idea of instituting a public speaking
course. This could not well be added to the al-
ready crowded curriculum and. not to be daunted.
they decided lu use the unused assembly hall after
the usual recitation period. Each Friday night this
small band of men assembled in said assembly hall
and under the direction of one of the faculty who
held foremost in his thoughts the welfare of the
school and the students of the school, worked out
a plan whereby their ambitions could be realized.
The Forum has grown consistently until at the
present time the membership is quite large.
The desire to be a part of the school, to work
for the good of all rather than self. became more
manifest as time passed bv, until during the junior
year most every member of the class was connected
in some way with school activities. The highest
and next highest honor which any student of Tech
can obtain were bestowed upon members of the
junior class of '24-'25 Those honors being: Presi-
ilent and Vice President of the Students Associa-
tion and which offices were held bv Mr. Hill and
Wir. Scherm respectively.
The final step but one was taken in the fall of
1925 when we occupied the chairs left vacant by
the graduating class of 25. XYe believe that we
have done our duty to ourselves and to our school.
Many have fallen by the way until only 41 mem-
bers remain of the almost 200 who enrolled on that
clear September night so long ago.
Vile now come to the end of our senior year. As
a last remark we wish to express our thanks to
the directors and management for the wonderful
school they offer and to express to them our appre-
ciation of the opportunity they offer that we may
learn, at a reasonable rate, while we also earn.
To the faculty, we express in concert, our thanks
for your untiring efforts and express our apprecia-
tion of the attitude you have taken in things we so
much wished to know.
And to Vilestinghouse Tech, we bid a fond adieu.
VVe leave you in name only. YVe remain with you
and for you, though by great space we may be
"Years may dim our recollection.
Time its change may bring,
Still thy name in fond affection
Evermore we sing."

Last Will and Testament
Henry Zeloyle '26
XfVe,, the members of the graduating class of
XVCSt1Hgl'lOLlS6 Technical Night School, located in
the borough of Turtle Creek, County of Allegheny,
State of Pennsylvania, being of exceedingly sound
minds, do hereby make, publish and declare, this,
our last will and testament, on the iirst day of
June, in the year of our Lord 1926, hereby revok-
ing all wills and testaments previously made by us.
To our worthy Directors, Management, and Fac-
ulty, our sincere appreciation for the good work and
effort they have put forth, to put us over the high
spots. May they succeed with their everlasting ef-
forts to develop the leadership in the succeeding
classes which they bestowed upon us.
To the industrious class of 1927, the Steam Lab-
oratory, :with its water knocks, lapping :steam
valves, and its adiabatic expansion. The Electrical
Laboratory with its burned out rheostats, lagging
power factors, short circuit stretchers, and its har-
monic effects on sine waves.
To the ambitious class of 1928, the Chemical
Laboratory with its burned out crucibles, latent
heat of fusion, and the freezing and melting point
To the Freshman we leave the advice, as no
questions of the upper classmen, for he who asks
questions shall receive "wrong information." Take
what you get from the Sophomores, for every dog
has his day. When you come to a street crossing,
stop, look, and listen, for there might be a Sopho-
more around the corner by "Smitty's', Pool Room.

Accounting Class Prophecy
Marion -I. Bostaph
A strange thing happened to me a short time
ago, about which I shall relate at length, since it
has a peculiar significance to all in our class at
I found myself standing on the top-most peak of
Oak Hill, gazing ahstractly up and down the great
IVestinghouse Valley. How I got there, or why
I was there, I am at a loss to answer, but some-
thing back in the recesses of my mind unconscious-
ly made me feel as though I should have been
there. Presently, I became aware of someone ap-
proaching where I stood and I glanced up inquir-
ingly. I can't, even now, explain why it didn't
surprise me when I saw standing before me, in
Hesh and blood, a dark-skinned stranger, his long
patriarchal beard fiowing in the wind, his head
swathed in a gorgeous turban, and his person robed
in a flashing, jewel-beclecked tunic, after the man-
ner of the East.
I-Ie bowed politely and spoke "Friend, I see that
thou hast honored our tryst, follow me and I shall
reveal that which I have promised."
Without a word, full of apprehension and antici-
pation, I followed. Up and up, higher and higher,
we climbed until only the vast, rolling oceans of
billowy fog and smoke were visible beneath and
the wide, open, illimitable expanse of clear heaven
above, I seemed to react immediately in sympathy
with the majestic spectacle of infinity presented to
my view, and a tranquility of mind, such as I had
never known, stole over me, while a broad, deep
understanding permeated my brain. Under the
subtle enchantment, all finite things-creation, life.
and all the mysteries of the world seemed to me to
have been resolved into a few, simple, readily com-
My mystic guide. bending down beside me. de-
scribed a circle with white chalk around my feet,
cautioned in that equally mvstic voice "Move not
without, or thy wish of heholding the future of
your classmates may remain unfulfilled."
Being accustomed by this time to the wondrous
happenings, I was not abashed in the least when
in an instant some hidden power cast creation into
cosmic blackness. Vifhether this condition existed
only in my mind, I cannot say, But let us go on.
A moment later, a circle of dazzling light ap-
peared before me about an arm's length away, con-
taining a chaos of moving shadows, which grad-
ually took on form, and I found myself looking
into a room! A soft, mellow, light, filtering into
the room, through several marvelous windows of
classic design revealed to my delighted gaze a vel-
vet carpeted, rich mahogany, shining brass, equip-
ped business office, such as only the mightiest men
of finance could afford. A door opened, and two
figures entered, one was short, dumpy and bald,
while the other was tall, white-haired, and well
groomed. Both had an unmistakable air of dis-
tinction. After seating themselves into two beau-
tifully carved chairs, I heard the taller state with
a decisive blow of his fist on the desk, "lVIr. Mor-
gan, you will accept my proposition of re-organi-
zation by tomorrow noon, or I shall withdraw my
support, which, as you are well aware, will throw
you into inevitable bankruptcy! Good day l" I-Ie
turned around-Great Guns!-It was Paul Mere-
scene began to blur, and when it cleared
I looked into another page from the future.
Mows of sweet smelling hay stood on either side,
while shafts of sunlight pierced the crevices be-
the shrinking clapboards and rested on the
roughened fioor of a barn. In the foreground a
figure, with his back turned and suspenders show-
ing, was squatting on a three legged stool, con-
tentedly milking a lazy looking cow, while behind
him a calf, unmolested, licked the filler off his
shapeless straw hat. VVhen he turned and called
"Mirandie" I recognized with a smile my old friend,
Bob Cunningham, the sheik.
The scene, blurring, cleared quickly and I saw
thousands of white clothed people waving hats
and cheering with gusto a man carried aloft in
apparent triumph by several broad shouldered men,
while the air rang "Vive! Vive Diaz, the Mussolini
of Venezuela!" Then the vision disappeared.
Then I heard sweet organ music, a picture was
flashed before me, and I knew I was in a movie
theater. The picture evidently was nearing its
close-when I saw Harold Dare fknown to us an-
cients as .Iordanl execute artistically, in a soul in-
spiring fadeout. a fervent osculation. reenforced
by H strove half nelson on the sweet ingenue, the
famous Colleen Cutie: then a quick "Firiis."
My next vision was in the form of a copy of the
pink "Police Gazette," on the very first page was
a faithful photo of Howard Swigart and his fifth
wife. They made a fine pair! The descriptive print
underneath them informed me that he was being
sued hy wives number one and four respectively
for non-payment of alimony, while the second son
of his third wife, after assaulting the ninth son of
his second wife with a feather duster, was petition-
ing him for bail to release him from the Turtle
Creek Irloosegow. Fo we leave him.
Many more visions came to me on this mount

around me, then my eye fell on a boxing ring, in

was to be decided there in a few moments by two
of the bitterest rivals the world has ever seen, and
who did I see slip up to the scratch but Ed Fox

A glance at the men at the ringside showed a
large heavy set man smoking a very black cigar
enjoying the patronage of those around him. Upon
closer scrutiny, I recognized jacobs whovwas evi-
dently the promoter of the great affair.
The scene shifted and behold I saw the interior
of a beautiful office. Gazing out of the window
I could see the National Capitol in the foreground
and knew it was in Washington, D. C. At a desk
sat a man with graying hair and the sign on his desk
showed him to be Mr. Beck, Secretary of the Treas-

1926 ACCOUNTING CLASS JOURNAL AND DETAILS THEREOF
In the fall of 1923 there was enrolled in the Ac-
counting Department the largest class in the his-
tory of the Department, some fifty fellows pro-
fessing an interest in the science of debits and
credits. At the spring enrollment seventeen more
were interested enoughto enroll for a course of
this fascinating UD study. It is to be regretted
that by the beginning of the fall term of 1924,
of the sixty-seven starting the course only twenty-
odd returned, the transfer to other schools or fields
of activity having been the cause of the non-return.
At that time, the Accounting Department had
no representation on the Owl Staff and the only
time we heard from the rest of the school was at
election time or when any tickets were to be dis-
posed of. We are pleased to report that this con-
dition no longer exists as we have three members
on the Owl staff and are actively interested in all
In our second year we were introduced to the
chain problems and what a struggle we had with
them. Law presented its trials but particularly
so with the Sales Act. At the beginning of this
term, A. K. Strommen, a member of this class, was
appointed Accounting Department Editor of the
Tech Owl. A short time later it was discovered
that Mr. Bostaph was an artist and with one or
two exceptions, all of the Owl Covers since that
time have been created by him. At the spring
assembly six members of'th1s department were
presented awards for participation in athletics and

Our Senior year has been a very busy one indeed.
In the fall term, we explored the mysteries of Cost
Accounting. A healthy chain problem kept up the
interest and afforded a splendid opportunity to
put to use the theory we were learning. Then we
had graphs. Some one surely had an active mind
to invent so many kinds of them. We must admit
that we had some great time at class by trying to
convince the instructor that the graphs turned in
by us were all that was desired. Law proved very
interesting as we studied the pitfalls that may be-
fall one not familiar with the proper ways of leas-
ing or renting property or mortgaging it. Also
what happens when an estate is settled. For the
first time, Scholarships were available for this de-
partment and at the Spring General Assembly, five
of them were presented. Of this number, two
were given to members of this class. At this time
also the Alumni Association voted to admit mem-
bers of this Department. This helps to give a
greater degree of equality than had hitherto been
given and we are proud to say that it was through
the efforts of some of the members of this class
that this has been brought about.
Our school days at Tech are now over and we
are prepared to burst forth on the unsuspecting
world with all the brilliance of a shooting star.
It is our hope that the first foundation we have
acquired will be the start of a career for each of
us that will rellect credit on the school and our-
selves. We will miss Tech. and we hope that we
will be kindly remembered by Tech during the
years to come P. F. Meredith.

COMMERCIAL CLASS HISTORY
Commencement! At last the goal has been at-
tained for which we have struggled so hard during
the past three Years. Xie did not think when we
enrolled at the beginning of that time, that we
should ever reach that Mecca looked toward to by
students all over the world4Graduation Time. The
time is really here, and at last we can look back
with a laugh and a smile upon our former wor-
ries and enjoy to the fullest extent the success that
After the first semester we became more in-
terested in our class sessions and our studies.
Shorthand seemed to be a difiicult task, when we
attempted to solve its mysterious signs, but we
soon realized that it could only be mastered by
hard work. .
"Learn while you Earn" is the slogan of lifest-
inghouse Tech. and no one can realize what it
really means until they have tried it out by going
to school three nights a week, and keeping before
them all of the time that other well known maxim
"Duty before Pleasure." It is a hard thing to do,
but when it is almost over we find that we have
not had a hard time after all. for we have had the
opportunity to form new friendships and to do new
things. Vile do not realize until our last terms
at school all that the patient instruction on the
part of our faculty has meant to us.
The wonderful times we have enjoyed at VVest
Tech! The dances. the basketball games, with the
cheering fellow students. It is only by partici-
pation in all the school activities that we get the
real school spirit and the fellowship that comes by
contact with new friends and old.
The party held at the Community House in Ard-
more at the beginning of this year was a big suc-
cess. Everyone had a good time, dancing and
eating and the prizes caused much merriment. The
Valentine Dance at the Masonic Temple was an-
other success. The free event at the Cafeteria will
be another pleasing memory of the past year. The
Irwin Male Chorus presented by the Senior Class
was enjoyed by everyone. Last but not least the
Banquet on Nay Sth, at the Morrowheld llotel,
was a fitting climax to a year of interesting events.
Our class election for the last semester was as
follows: President, Dorothy Allardg Secretary and
Treasurer, Nettie Lane: Owl Reporter. Anna
Lauth. The reporter's job seems to be the hardest
one of all, for it certainly takes some effort to get
the girls to make a write-up for the Owl. Ask
anyone that has been a reporter and they will tell
you the same story.
Now that we have come to the parting of the
ways, we will often think of the good time had
at Vllestinghouse Tech. IVe will cherish the mem-
ories of the friendships formed in our school, and
we want' to thank our instructors for their kind-
ness and patience with us during the time we
have spent at 'XVest Tech. Y

Class History of Foreign Department
Perhaps there is no graduating class whose mem-
bers have had such varied experiences, who come
from such widely different stations in life, and
whose preliminary training differs so much as is
the case of the members of the graduating class
or the Foreign Department.
To acquire a workable knowledge of the English
language, to learn something of the ideas and ideals
of America, to nt themselves so that they may
by honest work, be able to enjoy life according
to the American standard of living, and to become
worthy citizens of a great nation 5-such are the
aims and ambitions of these earnest students who
each -year are graduated from our Foreign De-
Emil Concelio came to America at the age of
twenty and landed in New York harbor on July
26, 1922. He first worked for a Steel Company in
Clairton, Pa. He came to the Westinghouse Air
Brake Company some time later and started in
the Foreign Department in the Fall term of this
year. His education in Italy consisted of three
years of high school. Emil took out his "first
papers" shortly after arriving here and will be
getting his final papers next year.
Richard Epple was born in Ditzingen, Germany,
in 1900. He had had several years of public school
and over three years in the machinist's school be-
fore coming to America in january 1925.
His first job was that of shaper operator for the
Oliver Iron and Steel Company, Pittsburgh, but
he is now employed as a tool designer in Section
Richard started in the Foreign Department in
of this year and has been able to com-

plete the work of the course in one term. He is
of his class and as such, has the honor
its representative at the Annual Com-
mencement Exercises. ' ,
Cesario Martinez is one of our Latin friends. He
was in Mexico City, Mexico, in the Year 1900 and
Came to the United States via thellzaredo Border
in April, 1924. His first job .was in a foundry in
Chicago, but he came to Pittsburgh about one
year ago and is now working for the Universal
Portland Cement Company-U ,
Cesario's thorough education. in the French Com-

silica great deal in mastering the English lan-

grade school in America for a time but it soon
became necessary for him to go to work and he
began attending night school last September.
He is employed as a machine operator for the
Pittsburgh Meter Company. Everything consid-
ered, there is probably no one who has made greater
progress in his school work -during the last term
than has our hard working john.
Nils H. Norris comes from Vestnes, Norway.
He landed at Boston, Mass. in May 1923 at the
age of twenty-five years. His first job was with
the Edgar Thompson Steel Works, where he has
advanced himself by diligent effort to the position
of machine operator. 1.
While his education in the old country was ob-
tained in the grammar school he has worked very
hard since coming to the Foreign Department last
November and is now one of our best students.
Nils has his first papers and is anxiously wait-
ing for the time when he will become a full-fledged
citizen of the U.S.A.
Emery Sarkany comes to us -from Budapest,
Hungary, where he was born in 1902. His educa-
tion in .Hungary was quite varied, he having had
five years in the public schools, three years in
high school and four years in the machinist trade.
He landed in America in 1922 and found work
among his fellow country-men in the coal mines
of West Virginia.
Coal mining, however, was not the kind of work
he had planned to do and he soon began to seek
work with promise of a better future, and so in
1924, against the advice and amidst the jeers of
his co-workers, he started for Pittsburgh where
he secured the position he now holds-that of
tool maker for the Westinghouse Company in See-
Emery started in the Foreign Department in
September, 1924, and has kept consistently at it
until he now graduates with honors. He also has
his "first" papers.
Herbert Tix landed in New York on Independence
Day, 1922, from Berlin, Germany. His education
consisted of public school, three years in a tech-
nical night school and four years as a mechanic.
His first job was that of machinist for an Ice Ma-
chine Company in Brunswick, New York,
Until lately, however, he has been employed in
Section Z-33 as a hot moulder on radio apparatus.
He started in the Foreign Department in Novem-
He has "first papers" and will be able to obtain
his second papers next vear.
Such is the line-up of the Class of 1925-26.
34 THE TECH owL
Edited by J. R. Roppel H .
Notwithstanding the fact that the record of the
football team was not as good as that of some,
former teams, nevertheless Vllestinghouse Tech has
had a very successful year in athletics.
The basketball teams representing Tech more
than regained the prestige which might have been
lost by the football team. Football is a game that
requires lots of practice, constant drilling, and con-
sequently far more' time than the average Tech
student has at his disposal. VVorking during the
day, going to school three hours a night, three
nights a week. imposes a heavy handicap on the
Tech players, and they are unable to compete on
an equal basis with schools that have more time
to devote to the game. X
The death of one of the players due to an acci-
dent on the practice held, and a realization of the
above factors, turned the sentiment of the school
against football, and at the last joint Assembly, it
was voted to drop football from the official list of
Tech Sports. '
The basketball teams both had a very success-
ful season, the boys winning 10 games out of 15
and the girls getting the upper hand in ll out of
14 games. Tech met teams this year that were
able to present a very strong lineup, and the way
they stood the test was a pleasant surprise to all.
Pitt Freshies, Westinghouse Club, VVestern Penn
School for the Deaf, Mansfield Works, and Irwin
Tech numbered among the opponents of the Owls.
The Tech basketball teams were noted for their
fine team work, and it is well nigh impossible to
pick out one or two men and class them as the
outstanding stars. Pendro and Cushman, at for-
ward, Baker at center, and Capt. Fike and Hess at
guards, all played a hne game for the boys varsity,
while the Misses Broson and VVeiss, at forward,
McMurdo at side center, Lawth at center, and
Kardos, and Mooney at guard played an excep-
tional game for the girls. Miss Money by her clever H1
guarding saved many a game for Tech. As is always the case, in sports as well as in
the game of life, there are students, who as can- J
didates for the teams, have given and clone their.
best from the start of the season to the close, and-
have failed to make their letter. Even though it '
has not been their good fortune to represent Tech
against its opponents as much as they would like?
to, still they have helped to make the Westing-P4
house Tech teams, and much credit is justly theirsf
This fact was brought'home in a telling manneri
by the Rankin Hi game, in which the tide was 5.
turned in ,favor of Tech, by one lone held goal made iii
by one of the reserves.

Tech teams. The basketball teams will not lose?
many members, by graduation this year, so thej
prospects for next year are very good.
An inter-class basketball league was formed last
season. The Freshman I quintet carried off the
honors winning 4 out of 5 games. This league -4
furnishes an excellent 'opportunity 'for students
who like to get a little exercise, and many havelj
taken advantage of it. It was a little late in start-,Q
ing last season. but plans are under way to or-f
ganize a league next year right at the beginning,
of the season. Games of this caliber, tend tok
awaken the class spirit at Tech, and class rivalry?

interest, school interest means VVestinghouse Tech,

dence at Tech. Mr. C. TV. Gregson, as Studenlgl
iwamigef of Athletic and Mr. s. M. Conable asf
Graduate Manager, have fulfilled the duties of their
respective ofhces in a quiet, but capable manner.
that merits the thanks of the entire student body

One of the most interesting years at lfVesting-
house Technical Night School Students Associa-
tion has come to a close. .
During the past year several questions of vital
importance were settled. The most important of
which was the change in the constitution. The
Accounting School has proved themselves worthy
of more representation, so that now.a junior in
the Accounting Department 1S permitted to run
Heretofore there have been ten issues of the Tech
O l. The first of which had to, be worked up
during the summer vacation. This of course re-

S ' r Class Play, Commencement and many other
irizilpiyiitant affairs. All of these things taken to-
gether worked a hardship on the members of the
1 Staff. Consequently it became necessary to
alrier the constitution to the effect that now there
will be nine issues of the Tech Owl, each issue
shall be published approximately the fifteenth of
the preceding month. '
The long discussed question of football at West-
inghouse Tech came to a close this year when it
was decided by the majority vote of the Student
Body that we should discontinue varsity football

The present Students' Association Officers terms
are about to, expire. We take this opportunity to
thank all of the students, faculty and alumni for
their co-operation during the past school year.
Some of the questions that have confronted us
were not of the most pleasant naturef But other
questions which were of a likeable nature far over
balanced. So that we have enjoyed our work to
a great extent.
We wish to extend our best wishes for a most
successful administration for the olficers that will
take our places, at the end of this year.

MEN'S FACULTY I
The worth of a product depends upon the raw
material on which the operations are performed
and the character of work done by the worker. The
product of a school is its alumni and the worth
of the school is measured by its alumni. The pro-
duct may be good only as the raw material, the
incoming student, is good and as the faculty is
effective in performing its function.
All students who enter the doors of XVestinghouse
Tech are not the best raw material upon which to
work to bring forth the product we have in view.
Many are merely misplaced and a training opera-
tion other than ours will produce a valuable hnished
product. Throughout the years of training there
are numerous inspection periods, numerous tests
the student must meet, and the unfit are soon
The product is variable for although the material
must conform to regular standards and must meet
regular tests, many variables enter into the produc-
tion. Advanced preliminary training above the re-
quirements, greater natural ability, clinic-rences of
experiences, and a better grasping' of the opportuni-
ties vary the alumni mil the school over wide limits.
XYe are concerned now, however, with the faculty,
those who are working with the student in the en-
deavor to bring it up to the established standard
ofthe course in which the student is enrolled. Upon
them depends the value of the training programs
of the school.
Eighty-one men and women com-pose the com-
plete faculty of Wfestinghouse Technical Night
School at the present time. These are distributed
in the various Departments as follows: Super-
visory 7, Engineering' 39, junior Engineering 9.
Foreign 4. Accounting 7, and WVomen's Department
15. Of this number 69 are employed in industry
during' the day, while 12 are engaged in Public
School work. T
lvlth 3 lllalflliltb' Employed dailv in industry, our
faculty members are peculiarly fitted to train the
student body for industry's work. Those whose
daily vocation is teaching, bring' to their night
school work a wide training audiia proven ability
to put the subjects across to the student. i
v Opr .instructors bring to their work a yvidg train-
mg 01 tw mfs College graduates or graduates of
THE TECH OWL 39
our own school, almost without exception. They
bring a practical experience which augments their
theoretical training so as to make it doubly valu-
able. To their students they bring a practical view-
point which, when added to the experiences of the
Student on his daily job, gives a training calculated
to nt the student for the work-a-day world.
In 1909, Mr. R. H. lfVynne lirst began to teach
in the Engineering Department. He has given con-
tinuous service since that time, being now Director
of Chemistry and Metallurgy. In the same year
Mr, I, S, Dean began to teach and taught Electricity
until a transfer to the Homewood Works of the VV.

Mr. Coler, President of the School, began to teach

Presidency. Mr. R. L. Helquist, Dire-ctor of
M hine -Shop Practice, begansto teach in l9l3,
while Mr. Mullen has taught nine, and a half years,

Vearq Qeven vears is the length of service for Mr.
'Austin and Mir, Peterson. Mr. Lynn has six and
one-half. while Messrs. Johnston and Leger each
have put in six years.
ln the Foreign Department there is one man who
has taught for seven and three-quarter years, Mr.
L. E. Markle. Mr. Titler, the Head of the Depart-
ment has served six and one-halt years.
In the VVomen's Department Miss Blanche Hol-
man and Miss Bess Cooper are tied for tirst honors
for length of service, with eight years each. Miss
Black ranks second with seven years, while Miss
Thompson comes next with tive years to her credit.
Thus seventeen instructors who are now teaching
have served together 14921 years. The total service
years of our present staff of 32 Cincluding super-
visoryj is 274W years, or an average of 3.38 years
To the devotion of these instructors our students
owe an inestimable debt. Their years of service are
given primarily because of a love for the work.
They give the hours after their day's work because
they Want to have a part in training young men
and women for industry's work. They of course,
are compensated,-to a small extent in money, but
to a greater extent in personal development and in

42 THE TECH OWL
Most of the present class of Soph II began their
careers in XY. T. N. S., two years ago in the En-
gineering Department of the school. Several, how-
ever, first prepared themselves for higher engineer-
ing work by entering the junior Engineering De-
partment ol XY. T. N. S. The men coming from
that Department have shown themselves well pre-
pared in the fundamentals of mathematics, which
after all is the basis of all engineering work, and
have proven themselves well fitted to continue the
study of the engineering profession
The members ol the class come from all points
of the compass. Missouri claims at least two,
Califm-H13 Ugg, tliltirzitlo one, XVashington two, New
York one, Ohio three, Minnesota one, Virginia
one and Pennsylvania the remainder
The class has been especially well represented
in activities. Several men gave good accounts of
themselves in football and basketball, while others
have participated in such activities as the Forum,
the Debating team, and the newly organized Ly-
ceum Club, as well as the Owl Staff and Owl
Club, The class also has the honor of producing
next year's Student Association Vice President in
the person of Mr. Freiner.
The present Soph H class is the tirst to carry
the new curriculum which has raised the scholastic
standing of Wiestinghouse Tech to a new plane.
XYith the introduction of standard college texts
used in many leading universities and colleges of
the country, and with the further advantage of
practical instructors who apply their knowledge in
the electrical industry every day and who are able
to separate the worth while practical from the
mere theoretical and impractical, the electrical en-
gineering course at NYestinghouse Tech has be-
second to none. This advanced course has
been carried successfully, however, bv most of

TVe were seniors, and this was to be our last year
in the Junior Engineering Department. Wfe found
that many of our old classmates were missing,
and new faces had taken their places. Wfe were
surprised to note the territory represented in our
school. Naturally, the majority of those in our
room are from the good state of Pennsylvania, Qhio,
XVest Virginia and Montana are also represented
in our midst. XVe have had one accident and some
sickness, but none of these have deterred us from
reaching the goal we set at the beginning of the

lt is almost the end of the term which has been
very pleasant and interesting. lt is now getting
very late and we still have a full class, but we owe
it all to our teachers-Miss Black, Miss Thompson
and Mrs. Russell, who have worked with ns and
helped us so much, and we extend to them our most
hearty thanks and hope we may all be able to be
with them for the next term, ready to work much
harder than before. The time has gone so fast that
it all seems a dream that our school closes on the
23th of May. We as a class, thank our teachers
lor the kind attention they gave us, and hope we
shall all be with them again next year with a better
working will than ever before.
The sewing class was well represented in Student
Activities this year by Miss Alice Wleiss.
Foot ball has lost out in the school, but it will
give more time to prepare for the Basketball Sea-

after our fingers are healed from where we stuck
them with pins and needles we will be back to show
the nice coat of tan we earned during vacation.

tonight on you are one of us and you should be
interested in the affairs of the Association.
lt aifords the Alumnae Association great pleas-
ure to be able to report that the following girls
won the Scholarships for the fall term of 1925:
E. M. HERR SCHOLARSHIPS: Filomena Di-
muzio, Agnes O'Brien, and Helen Kurtz.
ALUMNAE SCHOLARSHIP: Mary Wojciech-
XVe wish to congratulate the recipients and are
sure they are worthy of these Scholarships as they
have worked hard, which has been proven by the
excellent progress vtheyllhave Vmade. The girls
should all work hard and continue to put forth a
special effort to obtain the Scholarships. We also
wish to thank' the donors for their generosity in
making these Scholarships possible.
ELECTION OF OFFICERS
The first part of june a business meeting will
be held, at which time we will have CICCUOU Of
Qfiicers for the next year. As the success of the
Association depends largely upon its Officers, we
should all be thinking about it and have some sug-
gestions ready for the meeting, whenever it is held.

54 THE TECH OWL
The officers of the Alumni Association can point
to the year 1925-26 with a great deal of pride. This
applies particularly to the president. Not because
of what he has done, but on account of the splendid
co-operation he has received from the elected offi-
cgrs, appointed committees and the members. l,
therefore, feel proud of the opportunity to pass
along the credit of our accomplishments to the
individuals that just deserve it.
To Vice President R. S. Marthens, Secretary I.
H. Lewis and Treasurer VV. E. Fry, words cannot
express my appreciation of their valuable services
to the Association. They carried out the respon-
sibility of their offices.
Messrs. L. W. Gardner, j. C. McBride and E.
M. Kostic were responsible for the Social and En-
tertainment program. Mr. Kostic put across one
of the greatest affairs ever attempted by the As-
sociation. This was the Alumni play which ran
for two nights at Union High. ,
Past President W. V. Foust, '14, while serving
as Chairman of the Constitution and By-Laws Com-
mittee carried out the issues of the administration
and when they were presented for approval all
amendments were accepted without one dissenting
The Educational Committee under Mr. R. R.
Snyder, '21, and the Scholarship Committee under
Mr. T. A. Strommen, '25, performed to perfection
without any extra assistance from the officers.
The attitude and spirit of the members has been
such as to make one who has served them regret
that the year has expired.
The Constitution has been amended to provide
for the elegibility of the Accountancy Graduates.
Also a revised method of electing officers.
The membership has reached a new high level.
The financial condition of the'Association, as it will
be turned over to our successors, is one of the
chief reasons of our feeling proud.
To our successors-we envy you. You are as-
suming leadership in one of the finest organizations
in existence. An organization that, if you permit
the members to do their part, will bring you to
the point one year hence when you will say with
us-YVe feel proud of having had the opportunity
of serving in an official capacity in the Alumni As-
sociation of the Westinghouse Technical Night
School-It has been good for us.
The Alumni Association is just completing a
year of much activity. The officers and committee
members have played an important part in making
it a successful one.
PRESIDENT: The retiring President, C. B.
Dick, '23, is winding up quite an extensive West-
inghouse Tech career. VVhile in school he was
president of Student's Association, business man-
ager of Tech Owl, served as chairman of prac-
tically every committee, twice Class reporter and
six times Class president, including his graduating
class of 1923. Since graduating he has served one
year as Alumni Secretary, two years Alumni Edi-
tor, two years on Athletic Council and last june
was unanimously elected to the high office of Presi-
dent. This record speaks for itself.
VICE PRESIDENT: Richard S. Marthens, '17,
to do things in a big way, even though he is small
in stature, "Dick" has proven an able assistant
to President Dick. In spite of all his greatness he
possesses one weakness-that is automobile speed-
SECRETARY: It was found necessary to im-
port a Secretary from the state of Colorado. A
better one than I. H. Lewis, '25, could not be found
if we had searched the four corners of the earth.
Mr. Lewis in addition to keeping records straight
has served as Chairman of the Publicity Commit-
tee. He was president of the Graduating Class of
TREASURER: A native of Ohio proved an ex-
cellent watch dog of the Alumni pocket book. W.
E. Fry, '22, will put his books up to the Auditing
Committee any time. As Chairman of the Ticket
Committee during the last year he broke all pre-
REPRESENTING TRUSTEE: The name of
F. G. Kottmann, '10, need no further introduction
to the followers of Vlfestinghouse Tech. I-Ie has
always been an active member of the Alumni and
is completing his second term as Trustee.
In a general way it may be interesting to know
that none of the officers were born in the Pitts-
burgh District. lncidentally they are all with the
W. S. Sz M. Co., at East Pittsburgh at present with
the following positions: Dick, Foreman of Inspec
tors, Marthens, Power Engineerg Lewis Industrial
Salesman, Fry, Renewal Parts Engineer and Kott

Company's War Memorial Scholarships and entered
Carnegie Tech in 1919. His dream of a college de-
gree was now in sight, but there was plenty of
rough sledding yet to come. He proved to be in
earnest and for four years he continued his good
record started at Casino Tech.
In 1923 his dream came true and he graduated
from Carnegie Tech with an enviable record. He-
immediately returned to VVestinghouse to take up
the Graduate Student course. At the end of this
course, he entered the Railway Equipment En-
gineering Department. Shortly after entering this
department he was loaned to the N.Y. N.H. Sz H.
R.R. and there for six months he was busy getting
some actual experience in the field of his choice.
As all good Westinghouse Tech Alumni should
-he takes an active part in the religious and civic
developments of the community in which he lives.
He has just recently started on another educa-
tional course. Having taken unto himself a wife,
we predict that he will hnd he has just begun
"learning" and we hold out to him no hopes for a
"graduation" nor "degree" in this field.

HISTORY OF THE FORUM
The Forum of old bore the title of Forum
Romanum. It was liere in the Senate House that
Cicero delivered those renowned speeches which
over threw Catilineg and here Brutus made his de-
fense after the death of Caesar. It was here also
that Mark Antony swayed the passions of the mob
to vengeance and violence. X'Vhat is that you say?
You wanted the history of our Forum. Ah! I pray
you forgive me. One's mind is apt to wander a
little when one is growing old. Yes, of course, I
will tell you of our Forum. It began the second
week in December, Nineteen Hundred Twenty-tive.
Like most big things it had but a small beginning,
eleven members all told. Now we have over thirty
members. XVe had an election of officers, President.
Miss Pierceg Secretary, Miss Lauthg Chairman of
the Programme Committee, Miss Mary Martin,
Reporter, Miss Cecelia Martin. Our meetings are
good and well worth attending, but every meeting
is a little better than the preceding one, and so we
go on and on. Last month we had our first special,
which I am sure was a huge success. N'Ve hope to
be able to put on a "special" once a month. Of
course, this month hnishes school until September,
but I hope to see many of our members return,
bringing with them at least one new member, and
so make our Forum worthy of its name. I sin-
cerely trust that next September still finds us under
the supervision of that worthy sire, Mr. Gillam.
There that is all I can say at present for time is
limited, and I am not good at telling things
Cespecially liesj. Besides, I hate to bore. Thus
closes the History of the Forum, both ancient and
Reporter of Girls' Forum.
AN ODYSSEY OF A FLIVVER
By Stanley Gaines
Listen my children, and you shall hear
Of a wonderful ride, filled with fear
How, from Greensburg town in the early dawn
NVhen the dew was glistening on every lawn
The chariot awoke, with snorts and roars
That brought the neighbors to their doors
They're off, they're off, they're on their way
And East Pittsburgh but twenty miles away.
On thru the dawn with shiver and shake
The countryside thought there was an earthquake.
They coast bravely down to the foot of the hill
Oh, if they could the tank with Elixir lill!
The flivver groans, and squeaks and dies.
Oh try it in low, poor Edna cries
Gritting her teeth, Allene shifts the gear
Slowly the crest of the hill they near,
They rattle and shake, the minutes pass,
I think we'll stop and fill up with gas
She snorts and stops, the radiator aboil
I am afraid she has run out of oil.
It is in .Iacktown she takes the last leap
And all the inhabitants are fast asleep.
The minutes seem like hours as they pass
VVhile impatiently waiting for water, oil and gas.
At last a rustic swain appears
"And what can I do for you my dears"
Water, Oil and Cas let us quickly away
We'xfe wasted now at least half a dav.
IVith renewed vigor, she shakes onceimore
With her passengers sore as sore.
Cheer up, cheer up, we'll not give up the fray,
XVith East Pittsburgh but hfteen miles away.
Some Irwin streets come to their sight
Hurrah, Hurrah, we won half our fight
Fifteen miles per hour is the limit by law,
The old can couldn't.do better the best day she ever
Says Edna, "stop and let us eat".
Allene says "I'm stepping on with both feetm.
On we'll go if it takes all day
And East Pittsburgh only ten miles away.
Up the hill and down the dale
Is the sad story of this tale.
They rush down the hills with flying oil,
They crawl up the other side with toil.
Says Edna, "give her the gas, we now are late".
Allene replies, "This is the best I can get out of the
At last East McKeesport comes into view,
Hurrah, Hurrah, only Eve more miles to do.

They totally eclipse famous Jack and ill

THE TECH OWL
JUST PUBLISHED: '
Third Edition, Revised, and Enlarged.
By Westinghouse Engineers.
Compiled by William Nesbit.
The rapid expansion in the use of Electricity
necessitates a tremendous amount of arith-
metical labor in connection with the solution
of projected transmission and distribution cir-
cuits. This demandsimuch valuable time and
energy of the engineer and in the education of
young engineers in our technical schools. lt
is largely to assist these by making their work
easier and less liable to error and by providing
them with all the necessary tools that the data
in this book has been compiled.
From time to time, there have been pub-
lished many articles, each of which pertains
to some particular method of solution of trans-
mission circuit problems. This book consti-
tutes a review of each oi numerous methods
previously proposed by various authors with
examples illustrating each method. The accu-
racy which may be expected by the use of each
method is explained. Thus the user is given
a choice oi methods ranging from the most
simplified graphical forms of solutions to com-
plete mathematical solutions.
The user is provided numerous and exten-
sive tables of circuits and other constants
which make it unnecessary for him to l0S9
time or risk mistakes in calculating conSt21H'fS
for each case in question. Everv effort hHS
been made to simplify explanation-s bv the aid
of supplementary diagrams and tabulatiornpd I

When Cincinnati won at football, he cele-

Than and his associates determine how
practical is each application proposed. They
diagnose each customer's needs. They
prescribe the right Westinghouse equipment.
